i've got three merakis can I reflash them

i bought three merakis as a test and when they put the prices up I realized I had lost control of what I wanted to do. This new idea sounds great but i would like to reflash my merakis or its off to ebay to dump them but who wants to pay a surcharge on these to use them.

can they be re-flashed anyone know.

A) Screw Meraki, and 2) I bought the nodes prior to the ridiculous EULA update. If they want to come after me, they're welcome to try.

outdoor device

@chaska.net
How can Meraki enforce their EULA? There is no precedent. EULA is for software. But if you buy their hardware product and not use their software, how are you violating their EULA?

It's just really an embarrassment on their part. Google is actually behind these guys?

Does anyone know of ANY hardware vendor that can attach an EULA and enforce it? Yes, if you don't use a particular device the way it is recommended, you void their warranty, and so you can't go cry to them if it doesn't work...

But for what it's worth, I'm sure they can refuse your order if they know that you are purchasing 1,000 of these and you are not deploying on their network?

...anyway, I do need an outdoor device w/ POE, and that is what I am hoping to contribute to the Open-Mesh project.

Actually, all they will do is void your warranty. But, who cares? You plan on voiding it anyways if you do this.

Now, if you were a major reseller, and you were re-flashing their units, they may go after you.

I don't like anything that is out of my realm of control anyways.

Sure thing! My good friend Bill Ruckman has a handy walkthrough for beginners on his site.

Check it out:

When you're done there, slide on over to the ROBIN forums to get more great info:

Enjoy!
